SD Bill On Immigrants Prenatal Care Advances

SD Bill On Immigrants Prenatal Care Advances
PIERRE, SD -

A South Dakota Senate committee has referred a bill authorizing prenatal care for pregnant women in the country illegally to the appropriations committee.

The Health and Human Services Committee voted 4-3 to refer the bill with a recommendation to pass.

The bill would require state and federal Medicaid funds to cover the prenatal care of poor mothers in the country without legal permission.

Supporters say it's necessary to save the lives of babies who become citizens as soon as they are born. They say it will save the state money because women and babies without prenatal care have expensive complications.

Some committee members worry that referring the bill to appropriations to be added to the state budget would compromise the policy in it.

It has already passed through the House.
